A number of committees help to plan and manage the community’s affairs. Each of the Ardentown committees has a chairperson and from two to six additional members. The Coordinating Committee includes the town officers, trustees, and committee chairs.
The town elects committee members at the town meetings held four times each calendar year. Members of Ardentown committees are volunteers elected to terms of two or three years, and are not term-limited. If a committee member does not serve a full term for any reason, the town chairperson may appoint a replacement to fulfill the term.
